Please bring back Healthy Finish Pressed Powder!!!
from Denver, CO
I loved Healthy Finished Pressed Powder and am spending money on trying to find replacements that work as well and am not having luck!!
from Middletown, VA
About Me Classic Style
This powder rivals a high end powder foundation (am I allowed to mention brand names?) that is so expensive. Paula's powder is the same lovely velvety smooth texture with a fair amount of pigment that adds coverage and evens out the complexion when liquid foundation goes on a bit patchy. Really great. I just wish there was one more lighter and neutral color as the lightest color looks slightly beigey on my skin. It works fine, but can sometimes make my overall complexion look 1/2 shade darker. Not a big deal, though.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I had tried this Resist Flawless Finish when it was first introduced. That's back when you couldn't get even a smudge on a brush. It was refunded. When re-introduced as improved I jumped to try again and I'm so happy I did. Lives up to its claims and I'm very pleased with results. I have the Porcelain and about to try Light. I probably can't wear this in the middle of summer where I live without blotting papers for T zone but I still will be using it due to the fact that it really doesn't settle into lines and wrinkles nor does it dry out my skin. Goes on so smooth. So many still asking for the old Healthy Finish but I found it too heavy and shiny for me. (wish I could send all the neutral lovers my old ones) This is truly matte! Love it!Doesn't mean I'm always thrilled with removing of old products we loved for something new! I've had my own rants due to discontinued products I loved. That being said.....PLEASE don't drop this product too!
Miss Texture/Color/SPF of Healthy Finish
from Santa Fe, NM
I ordered this because it was the only one available at PC, although I was very disappointed that the SPF coverage had been discontinued. I didn't depend on it for the only SPF, but liked the idea that it was a kind of backup layer on top of SPF tinted moisturizer. "Neutral" in the old product was also a warm, very natural color. I am very fair (Sunsreen!) and so ordered Porcelain/Fair for Winter. Be forewarned -- this color is almost kabuki-white when compared to "Neutral". If I can't find a pressed powder with a SPF, I MAY try this in the next tint up. The case is needlessly large to accommodate a brush. I always press my pressed powder on with a puff. This brush doesn't seem to be worth the space.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Where is healthy finish pressed powder?
Please... Bring healthy finish pressed powder back!! I've been waiting so long and I had to buy healthy finish pressed powder in another cosmetics website. All my favorite products gone! Fantastic lash mascara and healthy finish pressed powder.. I'm just disappointed...

Prefer Healthy Finish Pressed Powder
This powder works ok, but I still prefer the Healthy Finish Pressed Powder, which had SPF 15. I didn't rely on it as my only sun protection, but I felt good about the extra layer.

HEALTHY FINISH NEUTRAL SPF
You discontinued an amazing product? Why? I am so ANNOYED right now...I have one left and came on to order 4 more because I can't live without it and it is gone. Does anyone have any suggestions on what comes close to the old product with SPF in neutral color?
Exceptional coverage and finish
I forgot to pack foundation (yes-foundation) for my vacation. Because it was a bit pricey, I don't want to re-purchase it. I've worn this powder as a finishing step to my foundation but discovered that using just corrector & concealer, I can finish with this powder and wow ...my face looks fabulous. In fact, I'm not sure I need foundation in the summer at all. My foundation is very moisturizing for the cooler climate but Paula's powder is exceptional, long wearing & the coverage is even & natural looking.

Please bring old formula back!
from Nanuet, ny
Please bring back the old formula!!!!! Best I've ever found and can't live without! My sister and I never have found a better formulated powder and this one doesn't come close. It didn't cause breakouts, had soft smooth coverage and the spf was a bonus! I have tried 5 other powders since it was discontinued and still can't find one that comes close to the old version. I still love the pc products but just am disappointed in this product.
